The Tree4Hope Crosses the High Seas to Guernsey!

This footage was taken BEFORE the storm kicked off, while Lachlan still thought the situation was amusing and there were still bottles left to smash in the duty free shop.

Land, me hearties! Arriving in Guernsey for the festival after a very stormy ferry crossing. It even made the news!! House high waves, 65 knot winds, roof caving in, screams and of course plenty of vomit... We kissed the ground!

 

Overcast but calm approaching Guernsey Harbour.

Calm in Guernsey harbour, we were greeted by a fork lift truck to collect the cars which had been damaged in the storm. Luckily, the Hope Truck was unscathed.
